A superb relic of the 1900 Presidential campaign, a 20 1/2" x 14 1/2" campaign broadside, printed in vibrant color with a jugate portrait of William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt at center over the slogan: "THE 'AMERICAN FLAG HAS NOT BEEN PLANTED IN FOREIGN SOIL TO ACQUIRE MORE TERRITORY BUT FOR HUMANITY'S SAKE'". The broadside illustrates the McKinley version of the improvements made by the administration during the first term. At left, under the heading "1896" we find the world inherited from a country "Gone Democratic" with scenes of desolation at home ("A run on the Bank"), and abroad ("Spanish Rule in Cuba"). At right we find a brighter scene for 1900 in which the nation has "Gone Republican" with scenes of progress and industry including "A run to the Bank" and "American Rule in Cuba" the latter paternalistically illustrated by an Anglo teacher instructing Cuban pupils. Minor marginal losses expertly repaired, lightly toned, else fine condition. Matted and framed and ready for display. Not examined out of frame.
